Gwen Bell is a self-taught Dallas Artist with a strong background in Commercial Art. Her 25 years of experience as a Freelance Artist led her down many avenues: Graphic Arts, Illustration, Murals, Commissioned Art pieces and now, full time Fine Art Painting. She works exclusively in Oils, choosing a variety of subjects ranging from lively Pet Portraits to bold Still Life. Her loose Alla Prima style may be described as Modern Impressionism with a touch of Realism. She takes a direct approach, often portraying Still Life from a Birdseye View and prefers to capture candid moments from everyday life giving her work a fresh and somewhat voyeuristic quality.
